Boxing: Amir lashes out at Mayweather

Mayweather makes his long-awaited return to the ring tomorrow against Victor Ortiz.

LONDON: Amir Khan doubts he will ever get to fight Floyd Mayweather Junior because the veteran American is terrified of losing his unbeaten record. Mayweather makes his long-awaited return to the ring tomorrow against Victor Ortiz, who is not expected to pose a serious threat to his perfect record. “In my opinion, Mayweather is a chicken,” said Khan. “He is doing everything to avoid me just as he did everything to avoid fighting Manny Pacquiao. I don’t want to sound cocky or arrogant but I believe the real reason for Mayweather avoiding me is that he knows I have his number. Mayweather knows if he ever fights me his zero will go.”
